How fast can one person sail around the world? Last year we thought we knew, but 12 months later when Francois Gabart smashed the previous record, the sailing world drew breath. Was this the ultimate limit to the ultimate challenge?
To find out, we looked at the history of round the world record breaking and talked exclusively to Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first man to sail solo, non-stop, around the world about how times have tumbled and what lies ahead.
In addition, we go to Nassau in the Bahamas to witness an extraordinary victory as the world’s best compete in a champion of champions showdown.
We also re-visit the grueling Volvo Ocean Race as the fleet careers though the Southern Ocean before parking up in the Pacific.
Plus, we take a look at the controversy in the Rolex Sydney Hobart race.

As you can see there is always some sailing going on somewhere in the world, even if your own private dwellings are snowed in and your boat is bound to the garage. Oh, so sorry to hear you’re living in the northern hemisphere. =^.^=
